Learning to Drive in Sudbury

Nayland Driving School offers exceptional driving tuition in Sudbury and the surrounding areas. As well as the country roads and smaller towns around Sudbury, our friendly and calming driving instructors will take you to larger towns to practice your driving in different environments. To help learner drivers familiarise themselves with the roads and traffic levels likely to be encountered on a test, we will include driving around Colchester, Bury St Edmunds or Ipswich as part of your lessons.

They’ll help you to feel confident and relaxed on the roads, so that you’re equipped to give the driving test your best shot first time.

Picking Up and Dropping Off in Sudbury

If convenience and flexibility is a big criteria for choosing a driving school, you’ll love our service. We can arrange for you to be picked up prior to your lesson in Sudbury and you will then take the wheel to head over to the area you plan to book your driving test in. Before the lesson ends, you’ll head back to Sudbury, if that is what you wish, so you’ll have the opportunity to not only experience the test centre location and surrounding areas but also the local roads around where you live or work. Contact us today to discuss how we can help you with this.

Mock Driving Tests

You’ll be offered the opportunity to take a mock test during your driving lessons. Not only will this help you to get to know the process of taking a test, but you’ll also feel more comfortable when the time comes, which gives you a better chance of success. The instructor will start the lesson in exactly the same way an examiner would start the test, they’ll explain how the mock test works, what they’ll be assessing you on and what you’ll be required to do during the drive. It’s all great preparation for when the real test comes around!

What happens on your first driving lesson?

In your first driving lesson, you’ll meet your driving instructor and you’ll be introduced to the car’s controls where you’ll learn about clutch control and how to safely move off and stop. Don’t forget to bring your provisional licence with you on your first lesson to show your instructor – failure to do means you won’t be able to drive!

The number of hours it takes to pass your driving test will depend on how quickly you pick it up. Some drivers may need less, and some drivers may need more. There’s no set number of hours to pass in, so take your time and build your confidence up first.

At Nayland Driving School, we have a beginners offer for the first 2 hours for £27! Check out our prices page to find more information on our block-buy lessons, intensive courses, motorway lessons and Pass Plus.


I was taught by Geoff for about 2 months and I went to my test and passed the first time with this company and I would highly recommend Geoff and the company ad he teaches really well, he ensures that you end up being a driver and not a learner and i felt that is a really respectable quality when it comes to a teacher. I could not say any bad experience and was extremely happy

Alen Thomas

For any one wanting to learn to drive but not sure who to go with I definitely recommend Nayland, with his great help I passed first time and in just over three months, the lessons were great I always looked forward to them as Michael is a lovely guy and very down to earth, and up for a laugh 🙂 but he is also very patient for any one who is nervous about driving. 🙂

Harriet Osborn Davies

Thanks a lot to Dave, very calm and professional instructor. Passed after 20h, would definitely recommend.

Mikolaj Witkowski

I passed my test first time, I didn’t need to use any other instructor as Michael gave me all the advice I needed, down to earth, practical and easy to understand. While learning to drive can be stressful, Micheal made it so easy for me. I enjoyed learning and looked forward to the lessons as they were really enjoyable, if you want to learn to drive with someone that will make it enjoyable and practical Micheal is the guy! guy.

Peter Callaghan

Before having Michael as a driving instructor I was with someone else! I was given his number through a recommendation, and his lessons gave me the confidence to pass my test! Michael has great prices and deals, to suit anyone! I have now been driving a year, and I have recommended many people to go with him and they have gone on to pass very fast! 🙂

Amy Cowlin

Massive thanks to Suzanne! Amazing instructor! Helped to boost my confidence and pass my test quickly! Highly recommend!
